Singapore Chinatown Tai Chong Kok Confectionery (Hue Kee) | ขนมไหว้พระจันทร์ร้านเก่าแก่ทำมือของสิงคโปร์

# Singapore Artisanal Mooncakes at Chinatown Tai Chong Kok Confectionery (Hue Kee) # Chinatown Tai Chong Kok Confectionery (Hue Kee) is a local favourite in Singapore when it comes to handmade artisanal Cantonese-style baked goods and mooncakes. They are most famous for their assorted mooncakes, but this place has always been a go-to among discerning locals looking for real authentic treats. Egg tarts, chicken cookies (my favourite), and whole arrays of delicious butter pastries.

Antoinette, Penhas Road, Singapore

# Singapore Cool Cafe # – Antoinette – French Patisserie with Hakka influences. If you look at the map of Singapore, you will see the area near ‘Lavender’ street running the north eastern side off downtown. This area, as I found out, is among the oldest on this island country. But now, as any Singaporean will tell you, the area is coming back with good array of cool and hip cafes run by younger generation who revived the old industrial area with new funky interior designs, not unlike what is happening in Bangkok Chinatown. Antoinette is a French patisserie that can be described as a pioneer of the area. Around since 2011...

Best Breakfast in Bangkok Chinatown (Yaowarat) | รีวิว อุไร ห่านพะโล้ ทรงวาด

We sometimes spend weekends stay-cationing at our condo in Bangkok CBD and take the opportunity of being close and convenient wandering around for great local foods – the ones considered too far-fetched given our usual abode in the suburb. And last week we ate at ‘Urai Han Palo Songwat’ (อุไรห่านพะโล้ทรงวาด) Teochew-style braised goose that for me is the best breakfast ever in Bangkok Chinatown or Yaowarat. Price: $$ (breakfast for two in this picture is less than Bt500) We walked pass Song Wat Road so many times before. And every time, we saw this clean-looking ‘Urai’ shop...

Handmade Dim Sum at Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant, Carlton Hotel Singapore | ติ่มซำ โรงแรมคาร์ลตัน สิงคโปร์

Asked which meal was the most special while we were in Singapore recently, and the answer can easily be the variety of hand-made dim sum at Wah Lok Restaurant at Carlton Hotel in the city center. Singapore is not short of dim sum opportunities – from old-school, red-carpeted venues, to hip and hyped places. But when it comes to the real things and the original creations, the locals would – in a perfect unison –  point to this place where some items are so hot and popular that you will need to call ahead and make reservations. Price: $$$ (dim sum average price S$7.5 ++) Above: Chili crab spring rolls created by Master Chef Yiu...
